Internationally recognised DJ Uberjak'd will visit Portland this December to hit the stage for the region’s biggest youth festival.

BreakFest 2017, hosted by the Glenelg Shire Council’s FReeZA crew, will take place on Friday 8 December and will feature popular DJ Uberjak'd who has performed at major festivals and venues across the world including Tomorrowland, Webster Hall New York and Stereosonic.

The Adelaide based DJ, who has been crowned the #1 DJ in South Australia for the past four years in a row, is also in the midst his international tour which has seen him perform in cities across Asia, Canada, Europe and the United States.

Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said she was pleased to welcome the successful music producer to headline the popular underage event.

“BreakFest is a great opportunity for our shire’s youngest residents to experience a music festival with some of our country’s best performers in their own backyard,” Cr Rank said.

“Our council is well recognised for putting on high class events which attract people from all over the region and BreakFest will be no different.

“With tickets selling fast, young people are reminded to get their tickets now to avoid disappointment.”

Uberjak'd will also be supported by local DJs Nath Jennings, Chegs, Scoop and Stiz.

BreakFest is a fully supervised event and will be drug, smoke and alcohol free.

Doors open from 7pm at the Portland Drill Hall with the festivities concluding at 12pm.
Tickets can be pre-purchased for $15 by contacting the Glenelg Shire Youth Facebook page or alternatively are $20 at the door.

FReeZA is a Victorian Government initiative that supports young Victorians to get involved in their community by planning and running drug, smoke and alcohol-free music and cultural events for other young people.
